Jackal Squad! Move in for the kill!
~ Infinite ordering his troops to battle.

Jackal Squad are the posthumous overarching antagonists of the 2017 video game Sonic Forces.

They are a group of thieves and mercenaries consisting entirely of anthropomorphic jackals lead by the self-proclaimed "Ultimate Mercenary", Infinite, who would go on to become the sole survivor of the team after they were killed by Shadow the Hedgehog, driving him to obtain the power of the finalized Phantom Ruby prototype and adopt his new, more threatening and sadistic persona.

History

Past

Not much is known about the Squad's past apart from being a gang of thieves and mercenaries working for money. One day they are tasked with raiding Dr. Eggman's base in Mystic Jungle and selling off his tech for money. Eggman (who just discovered the Phantom Ruby), accidentally triggers it, causing it to summon an army of Badnik replicas. With this newfound power, he attempts to defend his base from Jackal Squad, but to no avail. Eventually Infinite manages to reach Eggman and goes to deal the final blow, but then comes into contact with the Ruby which causes him to hallucinate a ruined world where he rules as an overlord. Seeing the potential in him, Eggman offers him and his squad to join him as one of the leaders of the Eggman Army. Although the rest of the Jackals were against this offer, Infinite accepts as a way to see the world he envisioned and forces the team to ally with Eggman.

Sonic Forces: Episode Shadow

Eggman becomes so obsessed with studying the Phantom Ruby and it's power that he becomes negligible to create more Badniks to defend his base. Because of this, Eggman hires the rest of Jackal Squad to protect his base while he does his studies. This attracts the attention of Team Dark, who send Shadow the Hedgehog to raid Eggmans base. When he begins to approach the base's perimeters, he is attacked by most of the Jackal Squad except for Infinite, who Shadow plows through, apparently killing them all in the process.

Unfazed by Shadow destroying his squad, Infinite boasts he'll show Shadow why he's called the Ultimate Mercenary and attacks Shim. But Shadow effortlessly defeats him and warns him never to show his face again before teleporting away. After his defeat and and realization of his own fear of Shadow, his inferiority complex is triggered causing him to have a meltdown.

With the tests completed, Eggman gives the Phantom Ruby to the now sole Jackal, granting him ultimate power. Infinite then dons a mask to hide his face, as we know him today.

Trivia

  • According to Deviantartist Nibroc-Rock, Adam Bryce Thomas, the lineartist for the official Sonic Forces digital comics, had approved the names Uno, Deux, Quatre and Trois for four members of the Jackal Squad, while the silhouetted ones were named Cinq and Sei.[1][2]
